I'm Adam Sell and I have two months left before I leave Boston. My challenge? Do something in the city every day. Have ideas for my adventure? Send me an email.
Part of me now wants to go back and change that blurb I was so excited about two months ago. But I figure, "nah, keep it the way it is. Someone might send me a brilliant idea on that email address, and I'd want to be sure to go back and do it someday."
So that's that, I guess. There were a few times where I wondered if I would ever make it to this point, but now that I'm here, I wish it had been "Boston in 90", or "Boston in 120". If there's one thing this project accomplished, it reaffirmed my love for this city and demonstrated rather capably how much I'm going to miss it when I depart. Sixty days' worth of activities was a grueling schedule, but there's still stuff out there I never got to do.
The moral of the story: it's not at all difficult to find a destination, or even a diversion in Boston and its environs. If nothing's jumping out at you, just follow your shadow for a while - it won't take long until something will catch your eye.
To anyone who emailed me suggestions, I thank you for contributing to the project, even if I was unable to complete your idea.
And here, I'd like to offer a huge thank you to everyone who accompanied me on an outing. It's a longer list than it was when I did this on Day 30, but here goes: great big thanks to Ben (who went on 12 outings with me, a full 20%!), Adrienne, Adam, Marisa, Natalie, Jalen, Joel, Conor, Elaine, Nick, Danielle, Jared, Kathlynn, Lane, Sheri, Prairie, Aleks, and my parents.
Also big thanks to the folks at Boston.com, who let me take this little idea I had in early June and turn it into the best way to spend a summer in the city ever.
